Retail General Manager (GM) Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Retail General Manager (GM)?

Retail General Manager (GM) in Montréal:
"Montreal Work Life."
Pros: I was born and raised here. This is my home.
Cons: There is nothing, not to like. We speak 2 languages, English and French and it's a beautiful place to be.

Retail General Manager (GM) in Kitchener:
Pros: I love the product that we sell. The training given is pretty good, they send store managers to Atlanta for training!
Cons: We do not make nearly enough for everything that we do. The sales approach is extremely aggressive and you get graded every week based on sales. How slow your mall is, is not taken into account. If you "pass" (D or above) but don't sell $30 average each transaction, you will be written up. If you sell $30 average but get an F, you will be written up. Human resources doesn't seem to care if you submit a complaint about management. There have been probably a dozen complaints about our area manager in the last 12 months and nothing has changed at all.
